Looking through magazines and books for inspiration, we can sometimes get discouraged. Our house isn't perfect. We have so much to do. We hate that couch. That closet is a mess. We'll never be able to afford that. It's at times like that these that we most have to remember that the difference is, we actually live in our house.
We do laundry and are too tired to put it away, we have parties and leave the dishes for the next day, the dining table is temporarily tax central. And, like our lives, our houses are a work-in-progress...
Hopefully, especially if you're doing the Cure, your house, with our help, will become not just a waystation but a haven from the outside world. A place that's cozy and comfortable, that supports your dreams, and your life, and recharges your batteries for the next day. And that seems pretty perfect to us.
